Common red Rhone varietals are syrah, Grenache, mourvedre, carignan, petite sirah, and cinsault. There are other lesser known as well.

That is one of the places listed for the winery. And I see it listed on one of the bottles.

I will say that the first and last names of this family (including ancestors) & winery are unusual enough that I can't give you a hint for them.

From what I have read:

Family immigrated from Italy in the early 1900s and has produced wine before and since.

They have their own vineyard.

Would this be a first time appearance on WW? Can't find them in the search engine.

*edit* I just saw ThunderThighs post above about the winery being on WW previously. Just can't find it I guess *edit*

You can stop where you are or keep asking me questions. I'm free until a bit before 11 when I have to get ready for Woot! Clue! on the Woot site.

The Zinfandel Grappa bottle would look mighty cute (and tasty) in a Woot pic with the Port!

It probably would... alas another wine took its place.

Dusi has only recent started making their own wine. They used to only sell their grapes to the likes of Turley, among others. Very well-known Zin vineyard in Paso, and I'm intrigued to try their own wines from their own vineyard.

My first vintage was when I was sixteen. My Grandfather guided me through the process from recollection of the days when his family ran the original “Dusi Winery” back in the 50’s. I learned, from him, the REAL Italian way to make wine, which happened to be a light variation of today’s California styles wines.

Free free to join in on Woot! Clue! at 11pm CST Su-Th (for the Mo-Fr sales). We play it on the site that I choose for that night's game. I always announce the location with a The Great Wakkorotti on the Woot main page though. If there's no site mentioned, then it's on woot. It's always in the current product thread.

Same style game - 20 questions.

And she (the daughter, who now owns the vineyard, I believe) is how old now? I believe they have only sold their wines publicly for a relatively small number of years. I could, of course, be wrong.

Yeah, I agree but it does sound like they used to sell wines in the past perhaps?

Very likely. I'm too young in age and wine memory to know. I'm also rather frustrated that I'm very likely in again. SWMBO loves the Dusi vineyard. My third purchase in less than 26... I may have a problem.

Only a good sort of problem

At least wine is a consumable. If you bought 3 sets of beanie babies every 26 hours, it would be another story.
